Clive Tucker

European Tour Coach

About Clive

Clive Tucker is recognised as one of Europe’s most sought after teaching professionals. He spent 10 years playing on the European and South African Tours and competed in 5 British Open Championships and was PGA Golfer of the year twice.

However, coaching was never far from his mind and he set about improving the skills that were needed. This process took some years but he became a PGA Advanced Fellow Professional, PGA Specialist Professional, a European Tour Coach and a Golf Monthly top 50 coach.

He has worked with high profile Tour Players including Graeme McDowell, David Howell, Darren Clarke, Lee Westwood, Thomas Bjorn, Peter Fowler and Karen Stupples. Clive can count 18 official Tour wins on 3 continents in his coaching record. Whilst working with Clive, David Howell rose to 9th in the official Golf World rankings and Graeme McDowell to 4th in the world after his 2010 US Open win.

As Graeme McDowell said in June 2001; “I probably haven’t given Clive enough credit in my career because I worked with him for 4 years leading up to winning the US Open and I literally parted company with him 2 months before I won at Pebble, but he had really laid the foundation down that helped me to on and have the type of year I had”.

In June 2021 in the Sunday Times when David Howell was interviewed said; “The coach I look up to is Clive Tucker. Around 2001 I went to his door as I had a thirst for knowledge and had complete trust in him. We went from 150th in the world to my pinnacle of 8th, so it was an amazing 5 years. We disagreed all the time, but he always had an answer which made sense, so I have gone back to him.”

Swing Studio & Mevo+

Another great addition to 2023, we now have the FligthScope Mevo+ on site at Mannings Heath. Great for the winter months, the combinaton of my new studio and FligthScope Mevo+ enables us to keep working throughout the winter in any weather.

Coaching

Successful coaching is undoubtedly a "Team" effort, and the input from both pupil and instructor even before the work begins will point the way to designing a programme that will suit your needs the best.

So understanding what you need to focus on improving, and why, is crucial to making the changes that will impact how often you play your best golf. It could be any aspect of your game that needs attention, but I'm very comfortable working on either full swing, finesse shots, short game, putting, course management and more.

Making solid technical improvements is a great short term goal, but its not the only one. Ultimately enhancing your ability to manage the progress, and know how to maintain it is the real prize.

Please don't hesitate to contact if you have any questions or to see how best can help.
